Man arrested in Las Vegas Strip stabbed deemed unfit to stand trial

LAS VEGAS — A man arrested for an October stabbing rampage that killed two people and injured six others on a sidewalk on the Las Vegas Strip has been ruled unfit to stand trial, his attorney said Friday.

A state court judge has ordered Yoni Christian Barrios, 32, to remain in a state mental institution indefinitely until doctors determine he can understand the criminal charges against him, a said defense attorney Scott Coffee.

If found competent, Barrios faces two counts of murder and six counts of attempted murder in the attack, which killed Maris DiGiovanni, 30, and Brent Allan Hallett, 46.

Authorities say Barrios asked DiGiovanni and other sidewalk showgirls to pose with him for a photo before brandishing a large chef’s knife outside the Wynn Las Vegas resort.

Prosecutor John Giordani was not immediately available Friday to comment on the jurisdictional ruling of Clark County District Court Judge Christy Craig.

Giordani said surveillance video clearly shows the midday attack.

Barrios’ attorney said his client was born in Guatemala and had lived in the United States for at least several years, but it was unclear if he was a documented immigrant.

A police arrest report said that after arriving in Las Vegas from Los Angeles, Barrios asked a concierge at the Wynn Hotel to contact U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. to send him back to Guatemala.

Barrios told police he believed the stabbed women were laughing at him and making fun of his clothes, authorities said.
